I will be selling my new zine 'Science Fiction Ladies' at the Alternative Press Fair this Sunday for £2.50. The zine ties off the body of work I produced over the summer and comes with six stickers.

Innocent Smoothies are aiming to raise £200,000 to help Age UK make winter warmer for thousands of older people across the UK. Hatted smoothies will be available to buy in Boots and Sainsbury’s stores across the UK for 3 weeks from the 3rd November. For every behatted bottle sold, 25p is donated to Age UK. Deadline is next Friday (29th October), so get knitting!
My knitting skills are fairly basic - so made the simplest pattern...seen here on little alcohol bottles...

I did these for the Peckham Film Festival, they didn't get used, but it was fun to do. The festival included a showing of Nosferatu on the roof of the Peckham Plex, so the memory of that is making me look forward to the next festival, next year!
